Export Controls

Arnall Golden Gregory has a unique capability to provide the full spectrum of representation and counseling in the field of U.S. export controls, including economic embargoes and trade sanctions, general export controls, technology transfer restrictions, and anti-boycott regulations. We have significant experience advising on matters arising under the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctions programs, Export Administration Regulations (EAR), International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) U.S. Antiboycott Regulations, and other U.S. and international laws and regulations governing trade, payments, and investment transactions.

We help our clients to develop compliance programs, conduct audits and internal investigations, and facilitate compliance in connection with business transactions. We also advise U.S. exporters on technology transfer issues and compliance and licensing matters relating to controlled technologies, for example (i) product and technology classifications; (ii) commodity jurisdiction requests; (iii) export and re-export licenses and license exceptions; (iv) technical assistance agreements and similar agreements under the ITAR; (v) compliance programs; (vi) “deemed" exports and related immigration and employment matters; and (vii) conflicts with foreign laws. Our lawyers also provide representation before U.S. Government agencies, including voluntary disclosures and export control enforcement matters.

Our export control clients include companies in the logistics and transportation, software, pharmaceutical and medical device, manufacturing, distribution, and education industries.
